Msc.Intelligent Transport Systems

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Transportation Sciences
Intelligent Transport Systems (IS) is a quickly evolving area facing a lack of qualified professionals. Why are these systems important? Intelligent Transport Systems integrate information and telecommunication technologies with transport engineering in order to achieve better transport systems efficiency, lower travel times, higher safety and security, reduction of environmental impacts, increase in passenger comfort. The study field Intelligent transport systems (IS) is a part of a Master´s Degree Programme called Technology in Transportation and Telecommunications and enlarges the spectrum of transportation education. The Faculty of Transportation Sciences is well recognized for its Intelligent Transport Systems education. It possesses vehicle simulators and has research laboratories specializing in ITS related problems (e. g. Laboratory of Telematics, Joint Laboratory of System Reliability and Laboratory of Traffic Control and Modelling). Last but not least, the Faculty of Transportation Sciences closely cooperates with the Intelligent Transport Systems and Services of the Czech Republic Association, with the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and with many organizations in the private sector. During the study students gain knowledge in the following areas: Transportation Systems, Automated Data Acquisition and Processing, Intelligent Transport Systems Management Skills, Mathematical Tools, Traffic Modelling and Simulation, Telecommunication, Specialization in Intelligent Transport Systems (design, control, evaluation, ...), GIS, Positioning, Navigation and Identification Systems, Complex Systems, Human Environmental Impacts, Safety and Sustainability. Study is organized as project oriented enabling team work on transport projects under the supervision of experienced specialists. In this study field there is the possibility of study in cooperation with Swedish university - the Intelligent Transport Systems study field is offered either as a single degree program at the Czech Technical University in Prague or as a joint-degrees study field combined with partner university in Linköping (Linköpings Universitet), Sweden offering students the possibility to obtain diploma also from the foreign university.

Graduate profile

Graduates acquire transport-technical knowledge, a detailed understanding of intelligent transport systems, their components, upcoming development in the field and also practical knowledge of the design, control and evaluation of these systems. The study is organized as project oriented enabling the students to become accustomed to a project work. Students gain experiences also during the work in laboratories - e. g. Laboratory of traffic control and modelling, Laboratory of system reliability, Driving simulation research group or Laboratory for electronic identification systems and communication. Graduates can find employment e. g. as: designers of complex transport systems, transport specialists in both the private and public sector, transport supervisors for complex city systems, tunnel control systems, etc., specialists in design of in-vehicle intelligent transport systems components, managers of large transport projects. Thanks to the international environment our graduates find their employment in various European countries or continue their career with the Ph.D. study at different European universities.
